    Wow - I haven’t looked at this thread for a while - there are some very talented creative types in our midst!
    I have only ever been able to do stick figures but  I do appreciate a good piece of art.’
    Also loved your creative words @melclarity.

    @Julez1958 @Cindi thank you so much for your kind words. Writing again was one of the great things that came out of this experience ;)

    Mel you said writing again - so were you writing before? What sort of thing may I ask - more poetry, or prose?

    @HelenlovesSnoopy I  have always written poetry but this year I started to dabble in a bit of prose too. A work in progress:)

    I think anyone who can write poetry (ie you!) will be able to write beautiful prose because you have a feel for the rhythm and flow of words. Even non-fiction can be creative and poetic. And you have lots of experience and perspective to draw upon.

    @HelenlovesSnoopy thank you so, for your kind words. You put it into words exactly how I write, I feel the rhythm and flow. I am involved in a worldwide website called allpoetry.com, I've loved it this year for the contests within it plus I've built a repertoire of over 100 now. I love my writing but having to work full time is quite challenging. So every chance I get I'm at it lol. One day I hope to get published, would be really something. The last 10 years I'm sure I could write something very relatable to every person on BCNA ;) Have a great day, big hugs xo

    WOW!  Well done, @melclarity!   Re getting published - a lot of people get 'self published' now ..... as you've already done the legwork & got it 'looking good' already - so just a matter of finding someone to put it together into a book & bind it for you  ..... my stepsister has done it with her poems (she is into bush poetry & other sorts too ...)   

    Great to see you back - and hope all is going well with you xxx

    take care

    @arpie glad to hear you're going well! Oh thank you I'm glad you liked it! Awww yes Reiki Master, I don't do in person healings. I specialize in Level II which is absent ;) pretty amazing. I've been doing it for over 20 years. It is time consuming however to do it. Working full time again, is hard juggling so Poetry is more my thing lately ;) xx
